I’m getting so stressed, I’ve looked into going to meetings that are close by me. I decided with what I want to talk about I don’t wish to attend the one closest to where I live. I decided I will attend the next one that also isn’t far but where I may not know people. My family seem to not understand this and are under the impression that I may not go. I understand they want to see me get help but surely me going where I feel comfortable is better for me? I just don’t know what to do. I’m getting the help and thought that was the main thing?
What should I do? I also can’t attend the closest one to me because of then having to get the time off work and I really don’t want to tell work why I need the time off.
